4 nights - Hotel Club Atlantico, Havana - Havana
Your Havana and Varadero twin-centre holiday starts with your flight from the UK to the vibrant Cuban city of Havana. Transfer to your chosen accommodation for a four-night stay.
Cuba's capital, Havana, captures the imagination with its faded glamour and irresistible colour palette. Walk along El Malecon and view the stunning vistas of the bay. Take a memorable tour of a working cigar factory or check out Havana Club Rum Factory; both of which offer insights into local manufacturing. Old Havana oozes character and is brimming with quaint cafes, souvenir shops, colourful cars, cobblestone alleyways, and remarkable architecture.
Attend a baseball game at Estadio Latinoamericano to get a flavour of the national sport or discover one of Havana's most-visited sites El Capitolio. Museum of the Revolution is a grand building packed with historical exhibits and Fidel Castro's famous yacht. Watch a spectacular show in Gran Teatro de La Habana, dance the salsa, or sample popular cuisine such as grilled lobster, tostones, malanga chips, ropa vieja, and milk flan.
10 nights - Starfish Varadero - Varadero
Transfer from Havana to Varadero and check into your chosen accommodation for a ten-night stay.
The popular beach resort of Varadero covers Cuba's narrow finger-like Hicacos Peninsula. The 20km of Atlantic Ocean coastline boasts a plethora of all inclusive hotels, spa complexes, and a golf course. Leave the culturally-rich colonial atmosphere of Cuba's mainland behind as you cross the drawbridge, slip into holiday mode, and enjoy Varadero's luxurious world of sun, sea, and sand. Discover swimming, scuba diving, and snorkelling in clear waters and crystal-encrusted caves and lush parks ashore.
No visit to Varadero would be complete without: exploring the hiking trails, Cueva de Ambrosio, and Cueva de Musulmanes at Reserva Ecologica; paying a visit to the idyllic pond and gardens at Parque Josone; stepping back in time at Museo Municipal Varadero and the 1929-built Mansion Xanadu; or descending underground to see stalactites, stalagmites, crystallised columns, and rock formations at Cueva Saturno.
